Camo Pants That Are Worth Repeating

Atlanta personal stylist, Top Atlanta blogger, Camo street style

Once upon a time there was a young lady (me) who would have never been caught wearing something twice, especially if the look was captured on the gram.  I mean, where day do dat at (in my slang voice, cause I'm cool like that)?  But then one day this young lady woke up and realized that that was the most craziest thing ever.  She understood that she was being uppity for no good reason and remembered she didn't have the closet of Rihanna.  After all what sense did it make to buy something I obviously liked only to wear it once?  Cray, right?

After I got over the "Repeat Outfit Offender" syndrome, I gained a better appreciation for my clothes and became more focused on making the most of my wardrobe.  While I very rarely repeat a look, I do wear items over and over.  I've said this before and I'll say it again for the people in the back.  When considering adding pieces to your wardrobe, before you buy it, envision at least 3-4 different ways to style that item with pieces you already have in your closet.  The goal is to maximize your wardrobes full potential, not to become a hoarder.  Maximizing your wardrobe means mixing and matching pieces that you already have to create different looks.  

Take these camo pants for instance.  This look is my 8th (or 9th) time styling these fatigues and each time I've replaced one or two pieces from the previous look to create a whole other outfit. Here are two good examples of the rare occasions when I've worn AND been photographed in the same look; the difference between the two is for the first look, I wore floral print block heels and paired it with a mixed print clutch.  Yet for the second look, I opted for flatform shoes and accessorized with a leopard print belt.  You see that with only a few subtle changes, you can create different looks with pieces you already have.  So you know I have to ask, which look is your fave?

Just in case you're curious about the other ways I've styled these pants >>> Go HERE!!!  And last but not least, you can follow my style journey on Instagram -- @thestyleklazit.

I Turned An Ugly Dress Into A Cute Shirt

Top Atlanta Blogger, Atlanta Personal Stylist, dress over skirt Street Style

The best part about being a stylist is showing my clients how to make the most of their wardrobe.  What I've found is that most of them don't have bad taste in clothes, they just struggle with seeing the potential that's in their own closet.  That's why it's my job to help them develop the ability to see their closets full potential, which gives them the kick start they need to begin creating awesome outfits. 

When it comes to shopping the first question you should be asking yourself before buying an item is - How many ways can I style this piece?  If you can come up with at least 3 ways, then it's a good buy.  Take today's look for example.  This thrifted marigold dress turned lace shirt didn't have any hanger appeal, yet I knew it had the possibility of being a cute top.  Removing the underlining was a game changer.

If you're into keeping up with the latest styles and trends, then you know see-through mesh or sheer is a thing.  And while I've dabbled with this trend on a small scale (see HERE) I'm still a little hesitant about people being able to see right through my clothes.  So here's what's funny, I knew immediately that I was going to style this top without anything under it - go figure.  Now we've seen this look styled with lingerie only or jeans and a tee-shirt beneath it.  I opted to wear a distressed denim mini skirt just so that my be-hind wasn't out for all to see.  

Last month I hosted another Kläzit Raid shopping party and scored this bight colored marigold blazer that gave this look all kinds of springtime vibes.  My shoes are old from ShoeDazzle, but a cute red flat or sandel (or whatever shoe you decide) will work with this look.  The icing on the cake for me was the cigar box handbag with the colorful parakeets.   

Btw, the first time I wore this top, I styled it with a pair of high-waist wide-legged jeans and platform heels.  The next time I wear it, I think maybe to pair it with a dress and sneakers.  So there you have it, 3 different ways to wear this ugly dress turned cute top.  Before I close, question.... Do you have anything in your closet that you can re-purpose?  Or what's your relationship with colors?  Do you try new colors or stick with your go-to ones?  Talk to me in the comments below.

That One Time I Almost Fought An Old Lady

Look who finally decided to get here... Friday!  And I'm glad about it.  I think the end of the week likes to play games with my emotions.  But it's here and I'm ready to start my weekend shenanigans.

Starting with later on this evening.  I'll be hanging out with some new blogger gal pals I met a few weeks ago at an event.  Oddly enough, I'm slightly excited.  If not for blogging, I think I'd still be that little semi-awkward person who noticed and admired other people's gifts and talents instead of noticing  and admiring my own gifts and talents.  

Before I get too sappy, let's talk about this awesomely fab vintage top I scored two years ago from a thrift store outlet.  For only (drum rolllllllllll) $1.75?!?!?!  This top is why I will forever thrift.  I remember the day we met (cue harp sound effect and blurry fade to scene two years ago).  I was walking around minding my own business when my friend called my name and was like, Little Bit (because I'm short) look what I found for you.  My eyes immediately lit up like Christmas lights.  I heard the thrift angels singing a dope melody and for just a moment the world stopped.  It was instant love at first sight.  

As soon as she brought it to me, throngs of people gather about me longing to touch, to feel, to embrace this colorful gem.  I gulped up all of the admiration for this find.  Yet there was this one person who was getting a little to close.  An older lady who kept trying to grab the top out of my hands.  She kept saying how beautiful the top was and how she remembers pieces like this top from back in her day.  Then she asks....

Can I try it on?  I immediately gave her the side eye.  All while she's trying to take the top out of my hands.  At this point, I'm like ma'am!  As she continues to get me to let go of the top.  After a few moments, I decided to let her try it on, but you can best believe, I was prepared to fight her over this top if she tried anything funny.  Needless to say I got the top.  I paired the top with an old pair of Forever21 jeans that I fringed at the bottom at one back pocket and red fringed heels, also old from JustFab.   

I hope you enjoyed my little story as much as you do this outfit.  Have a stylishly fun weekend!!!
